The NYCRUNS Queens Half & 5K returns to Flushing Meadows Park. The traffic-free course winds through the park, with great views of all the World's Fair sites and of course FMP in full Spring bloom.
Stick around for a bagel and a schmear, then explore the park’s nooks and crannies of sports fields, sculptures, and vast meadows before heading into downtown flushing to sample the great ethnic cuisine - there's everything you can imagine (and perhaps a few things you cannot).
Along with the NYCRUNS Central Park Half Marathon & the NYCRUNS Brooklyn Marathon & Half Marathon, the Queens Half (but not the 5K) is part of the Triboro Challenge & InterClub Challenge. See below for details.
The USATF certified courses hit all the famous landmarks and some parts of FMP you may never have seen before.
Bag check and toilets will be provided. Water will be available on the course, and bagels, spreads, fresh fruit and more will make up the usual great NYCRUNS post race spread to greet you at the finish line. The giveaway for this race will be a tech t-shirt*. All finishers will receive a medal. Free finish line photos and video will be available on your results page within a week of the race.
